The school endeavours to be caring and welcoming to each pupil. We aim to create a stable and happy environment in which every pupil is valued as an individual with different needs, interests and abilities.

The pastoral system, which is organised on a year basis, provides individual support for pupils. Each pupil is in the care of a Form Teacher.

In a big school like Cwm Rhymni, it is essential that the parents know who they should contact when they need support or information about their children. The first point of contact at all times is the head of year. The Headmaster and Deputy Headmasters are also available to respond to parental concerns when appropriate.

“Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni is a community that has an inclusive, friendly, Welsh ethos. It has an extremely strong sense of belonging, co-operation and shared aspirations. There is a spirit of industriousness and enthusiasm, which is fostered by all staff and pupils”.

The school council is extremely active and creates a school that aims to act sustainably”.

Provision for pupils who have additional learning needs is very effective and enables these pupils to make good progress”.
